Because of Shakira's great personality perhaps you can imagine what she invests her money in... But are you right?
Singer, humanitarian, and mom, Shakira has mostly stayed out of the spotlight the past few years. She welcomed two sons with her long-term partner, soccer player Gerard Piqué and settled down in Barcelona, Spain.
But she is still earning millions each year, and her reported net worth now hovers around $300M. Find out what she spends her money on most:
3. She’s her charity’s biggest donor
While other donors contribute to The Barefoot Foundation, and specifically the Colombian facet of the organization, Shakira isn’t afraid to pour her own wealth into the operations.
She frequently travels to Colombia to oversee the building of schools throughout the country, and to date, her foundation has erected five schools. The charity also feeds children and offers other services, and it’s something Shakira invests a lot of money on.
2. She has a career of philanthropy
She may not be kissing babies, but Shakira has met and worked alongside everyone from President Obama to prime minister Justin Trudeau. She also started a charitable organization at an early age, before she’d become famous farther than her native Colombia.
The Barefoot Foundation (also a larger, global initiative) helps support Colombian children, like the orphans Shakira remembers seeing at a park during an outing with her father. Shakira also donates cash to other causes and makes headlines for it.
1. And she is... A Mercedes-Benzs lover!
Shakira owns a staggering collection of Mercedes-Benz cars. According to Mercedes Blog, the star owns a G-class, SL 600, SL 550, and an SLK.
But although she has an impressive car collection, Shakira still needs a bit of help parking, noted the blog. Shakira was spotted in Spain, trying to park one of her many Mercedes’, when Gerard had to take over.
